We know that Broad Beans (and other legumes) fix nitrogen in the soil, so they are good things to plant not just for food, but for green manure. When these bean finished producing, we pulled them up, and you can clearly see the nodules of nitrogen in the roots. So we scraped them off before putting the roots in the compost bin. Go beans!
